I am a great believer in Karma, but just what is it? Karma comes from the Sanskrit and ancient Indian Language with the underlying principal that every deed in our lives will affect our future life. For example, if we treat others badly during our lifetime we will have negative experiences later on in that lifetime or in future lifetimes. Likewise, if we treat others well we will be rewarded by positive experiences.

What is a wish? It's a hope or desire for something to come true. If you take it further and make that wish a spell it becomes a concentrated thought form.

Every time you have a thought you create a thought form and that thought form is an energy that goes out into the Cosmos and can create an effect. You should never wish ill on anyone for everything you do you get back tenfold. If someone has hurt you no matter how much it hurts send them out healing energy and love, so that they might see the error of their ways. Allow the Universe and Karma to deal with wrong doers, for Karma will always find them and deal with them in the most appropriate way.

When you use spell work to enhance your wish always do your spell for the highest good, you must never wish ill on anyone nor must you covet someone's partner or material objects.

A spell is only as powerful as the energy that you put into it. True belief and concentration are necessary.

If you know your herbs and what they are used for, some of your best spells will be those you develop yourself. Of course, not all spells require herbs, or any tools for that matter. The energy and visualization from within you is very powerful.

  • Keep whole bay leaf in the corners of the rooms in your house to protect from any unwanted spirits.
  • Toss a bit of rosemary toward danger.. including people you want to stay away from you.
  • Sprinkle salt in doorways and window sills to avoid unwanted visitors.
  • Salt is a purifier, use it to cleanse tools after they are used.


This is just a simple generic candle spell that you can adapt to most anything you need. If you use it, please use it wisely. Don't use it to interfere with anyone else's life.

Find a spot where you will not be disturbed for awhile, and will have reasonable quiet. Use a flat level service, such as an altar. If you don't have an altar, you can use a coffee table or dresser. You can perform this spell during the day, or at night. If you do it at night, you can turn the lights off, but if it makes you uncomfortable, leave them on.

You will need a candle, oil for anointing the candle, one or more herbs corresponding to the spell. You will also need your athame, or straight pin if you don't have an athame. You can also use stones if you want. Check herb and color correspondences for the appropriate color, herb and oils. The shape of the candle does not really matter. Taper or Votive candles will work. If you can't find the color you need, use plain white.

Carve what you wish to accomplish into the candle with the athame or pin. If you are using a taper, carve the words from top to bottom, for increasing and bottom to top for decreasing. If you are using a votive candle, carve it around the candle clockwise for increasing, counterclockwise for decreasing.
Anoint the candle with the oil. A drop is enough. Rub from wick to end for increasing and end to wick for decreasing.

Put the candle in the holder. Sprinkle the herbs in a circle around the base of the candle, a pinch is more than enough. If you are using stones, set them in a circle around the candle holder. If you are using just one stone, set it beside the holder in the direction that corresponds to the purpose of your spell. For example, if you were doing a spell to increase your physical energy, you might set the stone in the south.

Light the candle. As you light the candle, visualize what you want to accomplish. To do this, think of what you need and hold a picture of it in your mind. You can also use a chant at this point or just say what you want to happen out loud. This is optional, in my opinion, visualization is the most effective.

Let the candle burn out completely if possible. DO Not leave it unattended.If you have to leave or go to sleep, put the candle out and relight it as soon as you can. No matter how safe you think your candle holders are, accidents can happen. ALWAYS monitor your candles, and use fireproof holders.

When the candle has burned out, dispose of the wax and herbs. Bury it if possible.

Color Correspondences

  • White: All Purpose, but especially good for purification, protection, truth, Maiden Aspect of the Goddess
  • Black: protection, absorbing negative energies, Crone Aspect of the Goddess, reversing and transforming negativity, removing obstacles or blocks
  • Red: Protection, energy, defense, element of fire, Mother Aspect of the Goddess, passionate love, motivation, action being taken
  • Pink: calm, love, reconciliation, children, peace
  • Blue: truth, creativity,protection, element of water
  • Green: Money, Prosperity, abundance, element of earth, success, marriage
  • Gold: The God, The sun, healing, prosperity
  • Silver: the goddess, the moon,neutralizing negative energies
  • Purple: protection, divination, psychic abilities, change luck, removing negative energies and spells, spiritual protection
  • Yellow: divination, element of air, healing, intellect
  • Magenta: added to any spell to speed results
  • Indigo: neutralize negative magic or negative energies
You can use most any type of candle with success. As long as the intention and faith it there, the candle doesn’t much matter.  7-day vigil or 2 day jar candles: these take a bit of time to burn out. They come glass encased and need no holder. You can carve your spell intent into the top of the candle, clockwise for increasing, counterclockwise for decreasing, or you can add a label to the jar with your spell intent. Anoint the top of the candle as stated above. If you use herbs, use a VERY light sprinkling, as they make it more likely the candle will catch fire and the glass will split. A good idea is to place them in a metal container in case the glass cracks which happens occasionally. They are good when you need an extra energy boost because of their tendency to burn a long time.

Votives: can be used same as above, for a shorter burning time.  The advantage of votives in a glass holder is that you can anoint the full candle with oils and herbs before you put them in the holder. Again put them on a metal or stone surface in the interests of fire safety.

Watch how your candles burn for signs as to how successful your spell may be. Your best result is where most of the wax is used and there is little or no blackness or soot. Soot can mean obstacles or adversity., and its wise to do a cleansing or working to remove these obstacles. Candles going out are also a VERY bad sign and may require repeated workings to wear down resistance.

I am often asked various questions pertaining to the spirit world and various aspects of the psychic, here are some of them: I will in time feature more questions and answers as this webpage evolves

Q. Is a psychic or medium a fortune teller?
A. It may surprise you to know psychics and mediums are not fortune tellers
Q. Is it possible to forecast the future?
A.Well not 100% and this is because of free will.
Q. What is free will?
A. Free will is YOUR right to decide what you want to do about a situation, it is a choice
Q. How does free will affect a situation?
A. Well before we incarnate as Spirit in a human body, we decide on what experiences and challenges that will benefit our spiritual growth. However we are given the choice (free will) as to whether we go through with the experience or challenge. In effect we are allowed to change or mind.
Q. So are you saying we all know what lies before us?
A. Well in a way we all do. Remember we are 'Spirit' in a human body and your spirit does retain a memory but it is deep in our subconscious. This memory is retained deeply for a reason to help us fulfill our experiences and challenges we ourselves chose. However it is also at this deep level so we are not so aware. If you knew what lay before you would you go through with it? Probably not but we still retain this memory deeply and this reflects in our Aura.
Q. So what is the Aura?
A.The aura is The Aura is an electromagnetic field that surrounds living bodies, this includes people, animals, plants and crystals and is composed of several layers that are constantly moving. The Aura links us to whats known as Universal energy i.e. that is all the knowledge in the Universe past, present and future. It is on this aura that psychics are able to tap into and access your past, whats going on in the present and the possible future and I say possible specifically if your goal or desire is dependent on other people, for remember every person involved in a situation has free will.
